Company Sponsored Lunches-“To Pay or Not To Pay?”

Dealerships, and quite frankly, other employers, from time to time, will put on a luncheon for the staff. The question is, “Does the employer have to pay their employees for their lunch period when the company sponsors the lunch?” Is there a difference between simply having lunch available for them, or having the luncheon as part of a staff meeting?

    Yes – I believe there is a difference. If the luncheon is manditory then you need to pay staff, if it is optional I would think you wouldn’t be required to pay them for the time.
